  The Tight-rope walker
   

A tightrope walker one day announces that he wants to perform a special feat. He is going to pull a steel cable across Niagara Falls and walk across the falls from the Canadian side to the American side


No one believed he could do such a feat especially a reporter who wrote in the newspaper that the tightrope walker was crazy.


The acrobat announced that he was going to perform his feat one Sunday. Many people came to watch and he successfully walked across the Falls. When he was on stage getting congratulated, he saw the reporter and he immediately asked him if he now believed or did he still believe he was crazy. The reporter replied he now believed as he saw the feat accomplished.


The tightrope walker then told the reporter that not only can he do this feat, he was confident that he can tie a special chair on his back, ask his assistant to sit on the chair and still do the same feat. He asked the reporter whether he believed it could be done. To this the reporter replied he did not believe it could be done and that he was crazy.


The tightrope walker announced to the audience that he will attempt this feat the following Sunday.


With all the newspaper and TV reports, thousands came the following Sunday to see him and his assistant perform this difficult feat and again the tightrope walker was successful.


When he was on stage, again he saw the reporter and asked whether he now believed.  The reporter congratulated him and said he now believed as he saw the feat with his own two eyes.


The tightrope walker then asked the reporter again," Do you really believe?"  The reporter said "Yes" as he saw the feat accomplished.


The tightrope walker then said to him, "Reporter, if you really believe, climb up my chair."


One of my favorite story used to close an opportunity meeting. Sometimes I bring it one step further by challenging new prospects and distributors to not only climb up my chair but learn to how to walk the tight rope to bring others across the Falls.


For training, I asked distributors not to be bothered by discouragements and challenges (swaying steel cable, strong winds and crashing sound of falling waters) and asked me to stop as I bring them across. I warned them that I will stop and put them back where we started as in MLM we cannot fail but we can always give it up.
